"As Jesus reminds us, "I love the night life/I gotta boogie"


Singer Alicia Keyes' musical setting of selections from Disco Pope: Favorite Inspirational Quotes from His Holiness John Paul II (1979)


From HuffPo:

Twitter Is Already Trolling Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci

Social media users are welcoming him to the job with their own inspiring quotes.

Only hours into the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci to the position of White House communications director, internet users were digging into his past. People resurfaced some of Scaramucci’s old tweets and took particular liking to one funny mishap. The new director posted a tweet attributing a quote to author Mark Twain that is a little hard to believe.

“Dance like no one is watching,” Scaramucci tweeted back in 2012. “Sing like no one is listening. Love like you’ve never been hurt and live like its heaven on earth. Mark Twain.”



Quotes attributed to the wrong people have a tendency to resurface every few years, and this has been one of them. Snopes.com and QuoteInvestigator.com both have pieces on their websites attempting to track down this particular quote, which may have been adapted from a song, popularized by Kathy Mattea in her 1989 album release, called “Come From The Heart.”

You got to sing like you don’t need the money,

Love like you’ll never get hurt,

You got to dance like nobody’s watchin’

It’s gotta come from the heart

Twitter users didn’t hesitate in mocking Scaramucci for the mistake...
